Board of Supervisors

The Board of Supervisors is the governing body of Ferguson Township and comprises five elected officials who each serve four-year terms: two elected at large and three elected by ward (Ward Voting Map). The Board of Supervisors is the policy-making body and is responsible for setting tax rates, approving an annual budget, and enacting ordinances to carry out policy. The Board of Supervisors appoints the Township Solicitor, Auditor and Township Manager.

The Board of Supervisors meets on the first and third Monday of each month.  Meetings are open to the public and residents are encouraged to attend. View and Print 2017 Board of Supervisors Meeting Schedule. You can also consult our website Events Calendar for Board of Supervisors and other Township meetings.
